2017 was a great year for Netflix. There was so much great stuff it was almost impossible to avoid “watching ahead.” There are certain shows that challenged our acting chops in our efforts to look surprised by what happened in the shows we had already secretly watched. I will take an Academy Award for my performance in “No I didn’t watch this episode of The Crown without you.” I would like to thank The Academy….
Netflix is also something that brought us together as a family. We love gathering around the television and enjoying a show together. It also sparks great conversation and my kids are really interesting people with a lot of insights so I really enjoy those talks. After all, they need us as friends too.
Just one more is a promise I can rarely make with Netflix. I mean, once you watch one, it’s hard to stop at that. At a certain point, it’s compulsive. You just have to know what comes next. How can you sleep when there are new episodes?
On the other hand, sometimes you want to take your time with a good thing. Like holding a glass of glorious wine in your mouth before you finish it, these Netflix favourites were ones that people decided to linger over just a little bit longer. They pressed snooze on the end of their favourite series by drawing out the enjoyment and making it last.
2017 was a good year for Netflix, indeed. I can’t wait to see what Netflix has in store for us in 2018. I am looking forward to new original content, old favourites, and more memories made on the sofa. Cheers to Netflix and 2017!
Disclosure: Netflix supplies our family with goodies in exchange for our honest opinions but I wouldn’t lie about what I’ve been watching on Netflix to you. After all, you’re not my husband.
